What People are Saying

“Be My Eyes is really impacting my independence greatly. I will not stop using Be My Eyes, because it’s part of me, it’s part of my independence.”

– Krissy, blind user from Philippines

“Everyone, who have decided to be a Be My Eyes volunteer, are willing to help out in any way they can. That’s just something that you know, and you can definitely feel when you call somebody, you don’t feel like you’re asking a huge favor or that somebody’s condescending to help you. You feel like they really do want to help you, and that’s pretty great.”

– Wenwei, blind user from USA

LEGO’s audio and braille instructions

Children learn a lot through play, and by building with LEGO’s they can acquire invaluable skills of creativity, critical thinking and collaboration. Being a very tactile toy, LEGO’s are a great way for blind children to learn about the world around them and be able to feel a brick model of what they can’t see. It has now become much easier for blind children to build the LEGO sets from scratch. LEGO has launched a pilot program introducing audio and braille building instructions, so vision impaired children are able to build following the building instructions alongside their sighted friends. Audio and braille building instructions are now available for 4 LEGO building sets with more to come, allowing blind and low-vision children to experience the joy of building.
